DIY Aftermarket Speakers--noob needs help
I just purchased a 2012 SE Sedan with the 6 speaker system w/ Sync. I must say that I've changed speakers in one vehicle ever. I know the changing of the speakers is not the difficult part. Finding the right ones and other aftermarket parts such as a sub and amp is.
I've read multiple threads on this site and I'm still lost as to what to do. So let me explain a little bit of what I want. I'm trying not to go crazy with spending, $300-400 is the range I don't want to go over.
From what I've gathered, the speakers in the front and back are 6.5" and there are tweeters in each front door. I would like to add a sub to the car, nothing obnoxious, just smaller one, I've never had one in a car before. I've also seen that adding an amp would help a lot, but I have no idea how to do this.
Also my antenna reception seems terrible, any way to fix that?
I mainly listen to Metal music, you know a lot of kick drums and downtuned guitars. Speakers/Sub that would help with that are what I need. I want to keep the stock head unit as well.
I seem really needy, sorry for that. Basically I need to know where to go to search for decent speakers, sub, and amp (and antenna?). Can someone direct me to a thread or site that seems best to help me on the installation of each of these? Any help is greatly appreciated.
Well just letting you know its going to be hard to get a whole system in the 300-400$ range. Maybe if you just want to add a sub and amp you might be able to keep it in that range. I would recommend Crutchfield.com because they give you instructions and lifetime phone tech support to help you if you get stuck on the install. I would try going with a name brand sub and matching amp. Hope this helped!
I know it will be hard to put together a good sound system on that budget. I'm not expecting the world, I just don't know really where to start. Like can someone link me to a good place to learn about car systems that would help me get started?
Also since there are tweeters in the front doors, does that mean I should get a 3 way speaker for the rear and a 2 way for the front?
Sounds like what you need is a powered subwoofer its an amp sub combo and all you need to do is tap into your speakers for an input signal to the amp . And run a remote turn on wire and power wire.
